Trendy Trench Coats and Jackets Spring-Summer 2016
Jackets and trench coats are fairly wanted clothing in the warm period of the year. In such clothes, fashionistas are not afraid of the spring slush, of neither summer rains nor the chilly evenings. Because of the huge assortment of jackets, kindly presented by our preferred designers, the spring-summer 2016 season promises to be very dynamic and varied.
Trendy short sleeved jackets and trench coats
Short sleeves are an undeniable trend of the new warm season. The three-quarters length is seen virtually in every clothing line. If the chosen jacket does not have this element, then it will not be hard to follow this trend as it will be enough to just to shorten the existing sleeves. Examples of such items can be found in Versus Versace, Vivienne Tam, Anthony Vaccarello, Iceberg collections.
To those who generally like the minimalist style, designers propose sleeveless trench coats and jackets. This idea seems to be unsuitable for the cold season, but in summer, similar coats are just ideal, as evidenced by fashion show from Issa, Givenchy, Philipp Plein, Marissa Webb, Saint Laurent, Gareth Pugh, Alexander Wang Antonio Berardi, Boss, Public School, Calvin Klein, Holly Fulton.
Jackets and trench coats with cords on the waist
Slim accentuated waist has always been considered a lady’s strong characteristic. Even if a lady wears an outer garment, this does not impede her look stylish and appealing. To this end, designers have recommended the use of all sorts of cords, belts, special cut and peplum (Christopher Raeburn, ADEAM, Alberta Ferretti, Topshop Unique, Ermanno Scervino, Boss, Fay, Martin Grant, Michael Kors, Christopher Raeburn, Banana Republic, Ports).
Mini jackets and trench coats
For the most active and daring ladies, brands offer a pretty bold length, the mini length. Such designs look ideal on slender ladies, which are not afraid to bare too much. That is why designers also proposed to wear the jacket on bare skin or with extremely sexy mesh shirts. And in case you have what to hide under layers of clothing, such jackets can also be worn over dresses or light sundresses. The whole variety of mini jackets was presented by Alexander Wang, This is the Uniform, Kate Spade, Fausto Puglisi, Elie Saab, Balmain, Emporio Armani, Dennis Basso, Diane von Furstenberg, Versace, Mugler.
Biker jackets and trench coats

In such outfits, ladies can claim the title of queen of the rock community.

Biker jackets can be worn with various clothing items: classic leather pants, shorts, leggings, and even dresses and sundresses.
Trendy jackets and trench coats: maxi length
As we know, designers are not used to stop only at one thing. In the new warm season, nothing has changed either. Some decided to prioritize short jackets, while others to the maxi length. Thus, jackets and coats to the ground can also be considered a trend of the new spring-summer season. You can see examples of articles in lines of Public School, Zac Posen, Derek Lam, Calvin Klein, Valentino, Naeem Khan, Marc Jacobs, Blumarine.
Freedom in movement proved to be one of the favorites of modern designers. To this end, brands recommend us to wear easy fit items and designs that received the name of “oversize”. No matter how strange it may sound, but larger sizes of coats and jackets, fit absolute majority of ladies: both slender and also ladies with some extra weight. If a few years ago the oversize style aroused a general puzzlement, now it is one of the main trends of the fashion industry (Parsons MFA ADEAM, Burberry Prorsum, Zac Posen, DKNY, Maison Margiela, Hunter Original, Paco Rabanne, Sharon Wauchob, Trussardi, Sally LaPointe, Rag and Bone).
Poncho and capes spring summer 2016
Continuing the theme of the relevance of the easy fit cut, we want to mention the incredible popularity of such outerwear designs such as ponchos and capes. Brands recommend us to wear such elements offering a wide range of fabrics, colors and combinations. Here we have the classic knitwear and leather, suede and fur, denim, folds, silk and knitted fabrics. In addition, what amazes us is also the design of such apparel. This can be a cape over shoulders, without laces or a piece of cloth wrapped around the female body. Most options offered by brands are design knotted only in the neck. Examples of modern poncho and cape can be seen at Salvatore Ferragamo, Valentino, Agnona, The Row, Ryan Lo, Gucci, Elie Saab, Emilia Wickstead, BCBG Max Azria, Burberry Prorsum, Osman, Public School, Libertine, Monique Lhuillier, Ashish.
Fashion shows can not include rain coats, which are a good friend during high rainfall season. Besides standard waterproof fabrics, designers use also hoods, designed to protect the feminine hairstyle from rain and wind. There are also unusual options. For example, Parsons MFA used a decorative umbrella instead of a hood. The same brand also is proposing to wear polyethylene coats. All the variety of waterproof can be seen at Greg Lauren, Hunter Original, Nicholas K, Anthony Thomas Melillo.
Sport is an integral part of the life of a modern woman, which could not be considered for brands to create future masterpieces. Active ladies are provided with special trench coats and jackets, in which they feel relaxed, confident and elegant (Lacoste, Marc Jacobs, Tommy Hilfiger, Alexander Wang, Rag and Bone).
Speaking of trendy fabrics, we must primarily mention the leather, which remains faithful to ladies of any age and generation. In the new warm season, presentations could not miss leather jackets. Brands have proposed both classic black leather, as well as the colored leather
(Dion Lee, Ellery, Bottega Veneta, Coach, Ashley Wiliams, Courreges, Anthony Vaccarello, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Hermes, Fendi, Ralph Lauren, J. Mendel).
In collections there was a room for fur items as well. Moreover, in summer 2016, designers increasingly suggest that fur was used only as decoration, although there are also jackets and capes made entirely of fur (Dennis Basso, Edun, Bottega Veneta, Betsey Johnson).
A special place is given to transparent trench coats. For this purpose, can be used both synthetic materials as well as natural, with different thickness and texture. One common thing has to unite the – transparency. The entire range of transparent jackets and coats was provided by Sibling, Betsey Johnson, Ashish, etc.
Glowing trench coats and jackets are still a hot trend of the season. For this purpose can be used various materials: velvet, patent leather, silk combined with viscose, polyester, multicolored lurex, etc. (Edun, Emanuel Ungaro, Iceberg, BCBG Max Azria, Courreges, Akris, Isabel Marant, Brunello Cucinelli, Lemaire, Emporio Armani, Antonio Marras, Aquilano).
Denim is still actual, proved by Giamba, Greg Lauren, Saint Laurent, Marques Almeida, Ashish, Mara Hoffman collections.
Perforated fabrics and articles made in Richelieu technique continued their triumphant march (Burberry Prorsum, Dennis Basso, Noir Kei Ninomiya).
What kind of fashion show without suede? This classic material also has made its way into fashion collections (Daks, Courreges, Dion Lee, Derek Lam, Greg Lauren, Loewe).
The color range was also a very impressive one. The leading positions are occupied by standard achromatic colors: black, white and gray. Adam Selman, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Calvin Klein, Bottega Veneta, Oscar de la Renta, Saint Laurent, Blumarine, Alexander Wang, Barbara Casasola, Arthur Arbesser and many other fashion guru opted for these shades.
Ermanno Scervino, Calvin Klein, Christian Siriano, Nina Ricci, Moschino, Ashish, Mother of Pearl have opted for pastel shades.

Fashion prints could not been overlooked in the spring-summer 2016 season. Like previous seasons, the leading positions are occupied by military prints, animal print, vegetable, floral and geometric proof being the fashion shows by Versace, Isa Arfen, Dolce & Gabbana, Lanvin, Juicy Couture, Fendi, Esteban Cortazar, Christian Dior, Coach, Anya Hindmarch.
The outfits can be decorated not only with prints. Dolce & Gabbana, Hunter Original, Philipp Plein, Louis Vuitton, Libertine, Diesel Black Gold, Dries Van Noten, Elie Tahari, Gucci, Alexander Wang, Gareth Pugh, Calvin Klein have used for this purpose embroidery, applications, metal buttons, rivets and other gasket. In addition, brands often resorted to using fringe, sequins, and decorative hems.
This is the diversity of jackets and trench coats designers have delighted us with in the new spring-summer 2016 season. Is very easy to get lost among this diversity, although this has some advantages – any fashionista, regardless of personal preferences, can find a jacket own liking.
